Movie Details

In this documentary on director Elia Kazan, his views on his life and oeuvre are brought forward through a long interview conducted by Michel Ciment, by a talk with Robert De Niro, and by clips from his movies America, America and Baby Doll. Although his interview is long, Kazan does not probe too deeply into his methodology or some of the more critical moments of his life, or why he had not worked on many projects in the years before this interview (1982). ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
